What a sad Final Fantasy scene this was... Such powerful emotion, and good story telling. This scene will forever be one of the greatest moments in video gaming history. This is my take on Aerith's (Aeris') Theme from Final Fantasy VII, for the Sony Playstation.

Yep..this is probably one of the best songs ever. Powerful, and as you said emotional. My girlfriend at the time even cried. A wonderful job here. If they had a 10 star rating, I'd give it to you. Thank's.

Excellent done on a classic. I always loved playing this game but the first time I got to this part and found out what happened to her, I actually broke down and cried. By the way, would this song be good for someone funeral or not?

aaaah final fantasy VII. how much i love this old game :D! and jeah, the deathscene is the most emotional and heartbraking scene in the whole game history, at least for me. how much i love aerith and her behavior x). but im still confused why i can buy her weapons, after she already died o.o; so i always have the feeling i have the chance to save her in the game...

to the track: of course it's not better than the original. but nobuo uematsu isn't beatable anyways, so it's no wonder why ^^. however, your track is played with a lot of heart... and thats clearly hearable. just listen to it (begins at 0:34) how cautious you worked here not to overhasten the situation, to keep the feelings :). overall i would say aerith would like your track :D (and me too by the way ^^).

quality: 2.5/2.5
taste: 2.0/2.5
stars: 4.5

Yes, one of the saddest moments in gaming. This is a very nicely done remix of this theme. Thank you.

Thank you!

I signed up just so I could write you this review. This is an absolutely fantastic piece. It matches the real thing perfectly but with better sound quality, as I'm sure a new version of the game would include. The timing is dead on and the instruments fit perfectly. Awesome job.
